Leisure reimagined at intu Lakeside

The UK’s first retail resort, the new £72 million leisure development at intu Lakeside, is already having a transformative effect on the region. The expansion is set to increase the 20 million footfall a year by more than two million and transform the centre into a major south east tourist destination.

The scheme is already a top five UK regional shopping centre, providing 255 brands across 1.66 million sq ft of space. Two former car parks overlooking a 22-acre lake have been transformed into the 225,000 sq ft development and includes 7,000 sq ft of public realm space.

The line-up includes one of the largest Hollywood Bowl centres in the UK, the second site for hi-tech mini-golf operator Puttshack and trampoline park operator brand Flip Out, the first Market Halls outside of London, new brands Chiktopia and Casco Lounge as well as Zizzi and TGI Fridays.

A 56,000 sq ft Nickelodeon family entertainment centre, will provide a unique anchor for the leisure
development later in the year. Here’s what customers are saying:
